In case you haven’t heard, we are planning another long bike tour next summer. This time it will be different, though, because the majority of it will be on trails and dirt roads. To handle the different terrain, we will use different gear – this style of bike touring is referred to as bikepacking. Due to weddings and other craziness this spring and summer, though, we haven’t had a chance for any practice (“shakeout”) tours until now.
My time here so far has been great fun! I’ve gotten lots of time with family and friends. I went on a few bike rides, including biking with my dad to work.
Some days going for a bike ride can feel like a chore and I find myself looking forward to the finish, especially if I’m trying to keep a certain pace or just get a good workout. And then there are the days when you’re just cruising along, thinking that you would keep going forever if you had the time. Today was one of those days…
Can’t wait for the next opportunity to actually just keep going!
While I missed you this weekend, I truly enjoyed my weekend with the chickadees down in beautiful Austin, Texas.
